Description

:

Original wood engraving by Tirzah Garwood (Tirzah Ravilious), created in 1929 for a projected but never published Curwen Press calendar. As published in 1930 by The London Mercury. Printed by the Mercury Press on wove paper. As usual with wood engravings published by The London Mercury, there is text on the verso. Below the image are printed the words, The Dog Show, Woodcut by Tirzah Garwood. This image is reproduced on p. 117 of Patricia Jaffé, Women Engravers. In British Wood-Engraved Book Illustration, Joanna Selwood draws attention to "a tweed-jacketed man in breeches holding a spotted handkerchief to his nose while he leads a string of dogs past a masculine-looking lady tending her Scottie dog" in this acutely observed and fondly comic scene. Please note that this is the original 1930 printing, not the 1989 re-strike (which was issued in an edition of 500 copies).
